One significant piece of news was missed during the breaking headlines and subsequent Burning of Knoxville surrounding Lane Kiffin's speedy exit from Tennessee to USC. His wife.
The dashing Layla Kiffin is a packaged deal with the new Trojan head coach and that is good news for USC fans and college football fans everywhere who enjoy seeing hot blonds on TV in between plays.
Layla Kiffin was out of the spotlight a bit in Knoxville, but the California sun will make her a star, possibly a legend when it comes to players' and coaches' hot wives. Here's a look at what fans are in for.
Does she fit the part of a SoCal head coach's wife or what? Her and Lane reportedly met while she was working for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where her father-in-law Monte Kiffin served as defensive coordinator for 12 seasons.
Crosstown rival Rick Neuheisel wants his UCLA team to overtake USC as the flagship program in SoCal. Easier said than done if Lane can bring his wife into living rooms across the recruiting trail.
She is a University of Florida alumnus and while she looks good in orange, she'll don the Cardinal and Gold on the USC sidelines.
With her bleached blond hair and pearls around her neck, Layla's look suits Southern California. Now that husband Lane is the big money head coach and the new BMOC, Layla will fit right in among the army of hot wives roaming Los Angeles.
If there is another detail that will make her even more endearing to USC students its the fact that the 34-year-old wife of head coach Lane Kiffin has already reached M.I.L.F. status. The pair have two daughters and one son—aptly named Monte Knox Kiffin or so he was.
Does her husband's job switch mean a name change is forthcoming, too?
Cameramen can't help themselves when it comes to getting reaction shots of wives or girlfriends in the stands. Whether it was Bill Cowher's wife in the '90s, or Brenda Warner or Kate Hudson. Cameramen and their directors believe we NEED to see how an athlete's better half reacts to the events on the field.
Will anyone have a problem seeing Layla plastered across their 46-inch HDTV sets?
Lane may need to recreate the mythical Walls of Troy to keep sauced-up Trojan fans away from his wife.
